Debates about welfare policy are invariably controversial, going right to the heart of what kind of society we want to be. This IFS at 50 event will set out the trade-offs that make this such an important and difficult area, how and why our approach has changed so radically over time, and how evidence can help us design policy better.

Tax underpins everything the government does and is often used by policy makers to try to shape the economy. Tax is also central to citizens’ views on whether our society is fair. This IFS at 50 event will look at how tax has changed in recent decades, what it means to aspire to a well-designed tax system, and how taxation will have to change to address the challenges of the future.

Support for low-income households in England to meet their council tax bills has now been the responsibility of councils for almost 6 years. In the face of funding cuts from central government, many have chosen to significantly cut council tax support (CTS). In many areas, even the lowest-income households have been handed local tax bills for the first time since the poll tax.
